Salem, Massachusetts, has become synonymous with an ugly happening that occurred over three centuries ago. Between 1692 and 1693, an early American episode of "Satanic panic" cost the lives of more than 20 people. We’re speaking, of course, of the Salem Witch Trials, which resulted in 19 accused witches being hung, one tortured to death, and four dying in prison while awaiting trial. While this tragic event took place over 300 years ago, its essence is still very much a part of the fabric of historic Essex County. In fact, witch-centric tourism is a big part of Salem’s economy. You can still tour The Witch House, the home of then-judge Jonathan Corwin, supposedly the first site where the accusers made their allegations. You can also see the home that inspired author Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic American novel The House of the Seven Gables in 1851.

While Salem’s past may be steeped in history, the city today is a bustling northern suburb of Boston, and home to about 43,000 people. It is surrounded by Danvers, Peabody, and Beverly; and is considered the birthplace of the National Guard. And like any modern-day suburb, it is home to many businesses and institutions, including Salem State University. As with any municipality where thousands of people live and work together, problems routinely arise that require the assistance of the legal profession.
